  • Promote the deployment of renewable energy in dwelling units that are occupied by low-income persons;
  • Ensure healthy indoor environments by enhancing or expanding health and safety measures and resources available to dwellings that are occupied by low-income persons;
  • Disseminate new methods and best practices among entities providing weatherization assistance; and
  • Encourage entities providing weatherization assistance to hire and retain employees who are individuals – from the community in which the assistance is provided and from communities or groups that are underrepresented in the home energy performance workforce, including religious and ethnic minorities, women, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and individuals who are socioeconomically disadvantaged.
